We’ve heard it all before, 2 guys and a dog taking an idea and turning it into a Billion-dollar business, but how is it that Israel despite its challenges manages to produce more successful start-ups than anywhere else? How is it that one university in Israel – the Technion, produces more than 70% of Israel’s startup founders and CEO’s? is it something in the water? Or perhaps a nation’s drive to prove itself and make an impact on the world?
Ayal will share the story of Outbrain– how it grew from an idea to the world’s leading content discovery platform, valued at over a $1B US and his journey of launching the Outbrain business across 11 markets in APAC.
You probably never heard about Outbrain before, but I can assure you that you interact with its technology on daily basis.
